Our AEO Packages

The Customs People has more than 50 years’ experience in helping clients to deal with import and export regulations, and we offer a bespoke service depending on the requirements of your business.

When it comes to applying for Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) status, the application process can be time consuming and confusing. However, as experts in the field, we can ensure your business approaches the process of obtaining AEO accreditation in a favourable and efficient manner.

We know that different organisations require varying levels of assistance, which is why we offer three bespoke packages that will cater to the specific level of help and input that your company will need based on your sector, internal capacity and knowledge.

Details of our three packages are outlined below:

Gold package

Ideal for businesses with extremely limited knowledge on customs and excise, our Gold package means you can take a step back and allow us to take control of this area for you. With this option, you can rest assured all your AEO dealings are in safe hands and rely on us at every step of the process.

Silver package

If you would like to be more involved in the AEO application process, but cannot afford to spend a considerable amount of time or staff resources working on gaining accreditation, our silver package may be the best option. This avenue is usually best suited to those businesses with a reasonable knowledge of customs and excise laws.

Bronze package

If you wish to retain the main control of your AEO application, and maybe have cost limitations in mind, our bronze package is the ideal option. Using this approach, our expert team will work with you on a consultancy basis, helping you to make sense of the often complicated process.

Success Stories

  • "Company 'O' was able to increase the value of sales made to its customer within the contract price after taking advantage of End-Use relief. This meant the initial $3.5million import in a 25 year contract was VAT and duty free."

  • "Cotton importer 'G' was at risk of losing money through the use of a wrong commodity code - this meant instead of 0% duty, 8% was applied, landing them with a bill of £80,000. Our investigations led to the assessment being waived, and the bill being cancelled."

    Cotton Importer -
  • "Company 'R' took advantage of our planning advice and structured purchases to ensure they were making the most of their options. Advice given included audit trail help, and anti-dumping duty guidance. "
